France: Greek PM urges Turkey to 'immediately stop unilateral actions'

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has urged neighbouring Turkey to cease its maritime activities in the eastern Mediterranean, which have led to an increase in tensions between both countries in recent months. Mitsotakis was speaking in Corsica on Thursday, after the MED7 Group meeting with the heads of states of France, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Italy, Spain and Portugal, in the lead up to a EU summit later this month. They are conclusions that present to Turkey the way to proceed if Turkey really wants a frank dialogue with Greece, with Cyprus, with the European Union it must demonstrate this in practice; to immediately stop unilateral actions, to make convincing indications that it respects international law, fully and not selectively,» Mitsotakis said. Tensions have been rising in the East Mediterranean between Greece and Turkey, relating to disputes over the countries' exclusive economic zones.
